    Pros

    Career progression to those who are serious about a job in care, i.e SVQ Qualifications etc , Flexibility of days if you are a student ect

    Shift lengths can be brutal, 15-hour shifts , less working days this way so i guess its up to the employee what they want.

    Pros

    Colleagues and management alike want to offer the best care possible to residents.

    Cons

    Management are well-intentioned and care about providing good care, but no amount of good intentions are enough to allow for every duty to be performed. Staffing just isn't adequate for that. This forces carers to compromise on their values in an effort to finish as many duties as possible in a shift.

    Advice to Management

    I realise that you are trapped between a rock and a hard place in terms of limited funding and the need to provide quality care. But quality care can only be provided in a well-staffed home. It's essential that more care assistants are on duty so that person-centred care can be put into practice and not be just a buzzword.

    Pros

    miss the residents in the home
    you can have a good experience working there too.

    Cons

    horrible bullying culture. if you kiss the overlord's/overlady's [?] bottom, feed them with information about other staff, constantly compliment on how lovely they look, you will be safe. otherwise, you're on the crosshairs.

    minimum care provided to residents which appears to pay out good [?] dividends to directors, bonuses to prison wardens, i mean managers. 1 care assistant for each floor of over 20 residents, very heavy for minimum wage pay.

    Advice to Management

    they are hopeless. i have no hope, no wonder its drowning in so much debt.
